Reality Street at Lamb's Conduit
Tuesday night at The Lamb featured Maggie O’Sullivan and Paul Brown launching new books from Reality Street. Brown’s new book A Cabin in the Mountains is his first since 1982 (he had an even earlier book, Meetings and Pursuits, on sale for the original price of £1.95). He read hesitantly, often (with a whistle) returning to misread lines, but this had the effect it can often have of making you concentrate harder on what’s being perfomed. O’Sullivan read from Waterfalls and its predecessor Red Shifts, the music of her delivery matching the artfulness of the work on the page.
